The last few days, we’ve explored important truths about the relationship between faith and science.
First, scientists are human. They make mistakes. Second, God’s Word is infallible. He never makes mistakes. So, we shouldn’t abandon revealed truth, like about Adam and Eve, for claims from a still-developing science, like genetics.
That doesn’t mean we should reject science either. Faith can and should ground the work of science. In fact, early scientists like Isaac Newton and Johannes Kepler saw the very possibility of science as evidence of the order of nature and power of God.
But many modern scientists reject that view and adopt philosophical naturalism, the idea that everything must have a purely natural explanation. But that can’t explain immaterial concepts like math and the laws of science, and it dismisses miracles upfront. That’s not real science, it’s narrow science. Real science doesn’t start by dismissing miracles in the world, it starts by seeing the world as a miracle.
